Dave

How did you cut the top hole so neatly?  Have you also cooked on the top plate as a barbecue plate at all?  If so has it warped?

Here is an interesting concept. Someone is selling these up here on Facebook for $150.

Has an ash tray like a Weber Kettle. No further photos to show details though.

I  did get  to use the kings  camp oven stove over the weekend  I was surprised on how well it went It did take a little while to get some good coals (meaning it would not burn the hard wood easily ) until it was realy going using pine as starter but when it had a fair bit of heat in it  it worked well I had it under my awning  and  very little smoke came out of the front if at all it draws air very well with the flue giving of a nice note   It was a cold and wet weekend but this little thing gave of  great warmth
Would I recommend them ?
For the cheap price that they are yes

Kev, I see your water boiler there.  Did you ever solve the issue of rusting inside??

Thanks Gromet.
On the strength of your review I drove the 5 minutes to the Brendale store and got the Kings Camp Stove for $82.50
I think that was a bargain.
Today only price, apparently. For those that need delivery, it's another $20.

I did a bit of research TBF and that was a very good price. I am making one right now and there is more in it than meets the eye!

When I die I hope my missus doesn't sell my camp ovens  for what I told her I paid for them. pd
